Essex Bay, Essex, Massachusetts, US
Sep 4, 2017 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Protocol: Stationary
Comments: April Manganiello and I birded the Spit, 2.5 hrs following
high tide. Thie DCCO count is low, and the accompanying egrets are also
reduced. There has also been an absence of common terns in the bay this
summer. My guess is that hatch year fish in the bay have decreased notably.
